Construction of intersection improvements at Route 31 (8th St) and Route 72 (Main St) in West Dundee is complete. The full intersection was reopened on June 19, 2014.
The project, which was managed by the State of Illinois (IDOT), included widening of both 31 and 72 leading up to the intersection, median modifications, the addition of a second left turn lane for north and southbound traffic, and addition of a right turn lane for westbound traffic, curb and gutter reconstruction, new sidewalks, traffic signal improvements, lighting relocations and storm sewer improvements.
In 2013, the Illinois Tollway began the Jane Addams Memorial Tollway (I-90) Rebuilding and Widening Project by rebuilding the eastbound lanes between Rockford and Elgin.
In 2014, major projects include completion of the 37-mile western segment of the I-90 Rebuilding and Widening Project from Elgin to I-39 near Rockford and the start of construction on the 25-mile eastern segment of the I-90 Rebuilding and Widening Project between Elgin and the Tri-State Tollway (I-294). Construction also includes improvements at interchanges, reconstruction of the Fox River Bridge and local crossroad bridges throughout the entire I-90 corridor.
The I-90 Rebuilding and Widening Project is scheduled to be completed in 2016.
